“Really a great place”
Reviewed 26 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

My wife and I traveled with our 3 teenage daughters to Amsterdam for 5 days, and rented Charles' Amsterdam City Canal Apartment. It was just what we needed. First, the location was great for us. The apartment is on a very pleasant residential street, but close enough in that it was easy to get everywhere we wanted (Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh museum, Anne Frank, and Central Station for a day trip to Delft and The Hague) by foot or by the easy tram system in the city. (If you are going to be in Amsterdam for more than a few days, buy a multi-day pass!) The neighborhood was family-friendly, and we had no concerns about leaving our teenagers for an evening when we went out to dinner. The apartment itself is spacious, with a great sitting area, a porch on the front and the back with nice views, and large bedrooms. The adults will want the master bedroom in the back, which is large, with a nice sitting area and a large and comfortable en suite bathroom. The apartment covers the third and fourth floors, and Charles lives on the lower floors which was great when we needed advice. We could not have asked for a more gracious host. He greeted us warmly, left boxes of treats and drinks in the fridge for us, and we frequently saw and chatted with him when we were coming or going during the week. All in all, a great experience and we'll be back.

“Fantastic apartment, great location.”
Reviewed 16 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Fantastic apartment in a lovely quiet location. It's a bit away from the centre but we liked to have the quiet and also enjoyed the 20 minute walk after dinner or it was a very quick taxi. There were a few bars in the area and a supermarket downstairs. The apartment was really spacious and beautifully decorated with all the amenities we needed as well as a few lovely supplies for our arrival. It was great to have so much space to have a rest in-between our busy weekend. Great bagel shop if you need to grab some breakfast.

“Perfect!”
Reviewed 2 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We had a fantastic long weekend away. The apartment is very clean, spacious and well equipped. The location was perfect for what we wanted - a short walk to the Anne Frank House, bars and restaurants on the doorstep, in a pretty residential area but still close enough to the city centre. Supermarket on the corner is great for provisions. We used hop on hop off canal boat tickets to see all the sights and also enjoyed a lovely sunny afternoon in Vondelpark (we recommend the cafe in the centre of the park for delicious sandwiches and Dutch apple cake).

Although we sadly didn't meet Charles this time - (we may be back!) we welcomed his help booking us a taxi to the airport and nothing was too much trouble, we received really useful info about the area before we arrived and the extra touches in the apartment (fresh flowers, goodies to eat and drink) were lovely.

We would definitely recommend this apartment for seeing the city with the flexibility and home comforts that you can't get in a hotel. As other reviews have noted the stairs are typical Dutch - steep and narrow - fine for us but wouldn't be great for pushchairs or the less able.

Thank you Charles!!

“Awesome rental for a group!”
Reviewed 22 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Eight guys on a reunion trip and we had a blast. Communications about the rental, check-in and check out could not have been smoother. Charles is a really welcoming, generous host (even lended us his blender when we decided to cook up a big meal). The rooms are large and the bathrooms are much bigger than we expected for a European rental. The bunk beds in the small bedroom worked very well for us too, providing quiet space for someone who needed it. Just keep in mind that there are a set of steep narrow stairs to get up to the apartment from the street. This did not bother us one bit, but if you have someone in your group that might find that challenging, it's something to consider.

The apartment is located within a 10 min walk from Ann Frank Huis and about 20 minutes each from the museums and Dam Square. There are very good coffee shops, restaurants and bike rental places within a 5-10 minute walk. A well stocked grocery and liquor store is a 3 minute walk away.

We loved it and would go back any time!

“Super Apartment, lovely neighbourhood!”
Reviewed 2 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed for four days in the City Canal Apartment. This proved an excellent choice! The apartment is specious, very comfortable and well appointed. The neighbourhood is lovely, just outside the very busy and touristy centre, yet within reach of all the main sights. Local shops and restaurants are super. Public transport gets you anywhere in no time. We got a very warm welcome from our host Charles, with a big selection of Dutch biscuits and treats. We will be back in future!

“Great location”
Reviewed 23 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We found Canal House in a great location with food markets & trains & restaurants around the corner.
The charming apartment suited the needs of a 3 generation family. Bedrooms were spacious with comfortable beds. Grandparents stayed on the floor with Living area & the others were upstairs. We managed the steep steps that you find in all Amsterdam apartments.
Charles is a gracious host and had baskets of sweets, milk, juice, coffee , tea & yogurt ready for us.
We highly recommend this apartment. It was everything it claimed to be.

The rental was perfect and in a great location. In Charles’ absence we were welcomed by Janet. We were provided with detailed instructions and lots of information regarding what to do and where to go in the surrounding neighbourhood.

You could tell that Charles put a lot of thought into making people feel at home by having a ‘welcome’ basket of goodies, large, thick towels and lots of kitchen and bathroom supplies.

The rental was very clean and comfortable and we would definitely stay there again
